      Pros

      Nice office, nice brokers, staff that can help you with creating marketing brochures/postcards, managing brokers who dont do their own business, marketting templates, internal forum to discuss topics amongst other brokers

      Cons

      Not the best mentoring, once you join on your own you cant switch to being on a team, not everyone is treated equally, top performers get treated better then new brokers, new brokers go through tons of in class training but dont even know how to do a listing or buyers presentation, arent given fair leads to start their business, basically you wont get anywhere unless you are very self motivated, commission for new brokers is low comapred to competitors and there is also a royalty fee to use the name. No desk for new brokers only some shared computers against the wall. A little bit old school. Would rather let people quit then give them a higher commission to stay or work with them to match what competitors give. No ladder to success.

      Pros

      Great people. Good collaboration. Management is very supportive and willing to put aside time to help agents. Is way more “corporate” than other brokers. Marketing department will create whatever you dream up. I enjoyed working here.

      Cons

      Administration/operations department is overworked. Marketing department is small. Support services are lacking. Brick and mortar offices are going out.

      Pros

      Managing brokers are attentive. Glass door ratings for residential brokers are not fair. Because it comes down how much brokers want to work how they manage “life/work” is up to them.

      Cons

      Technology lacking. Corporate element to brokerage.

      Pros

      This is a fabulous company to work for! The tools for training and success are unending. The managing broker is so kind and will go out of his way to make sure you have all of your questions answered and you are set up for success.

      Cons

      The only con is the career path itself. Being a commission only employee can be frustrating at times because your pay is so inconsistent.
